Judging by the standing ovation, Anthony Miller did the job. He inspired thousands gathered to celebrate 2013 Spring Commencement at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.
“Sometimes as college students we hear that the economy is bad or we won’t make any money with that degree or it’s hard to find jobs,” said Miller, of Milwaukee, supplying Commencement day’s morning student address. “When someone tells you this – look them in the face and say hard doesn’t make things impossible, hard means hard, hard is simply an odd waiting to be beat. When they say you can’t tell them you can. When they say you won’t tell them you will.”
